I realized today that I really missed working on Mermaids of the Deep Blue and with being active in the Mirabilia SAL, so I put Medieval Town Mandala aside for the day and worked on my mermaids instead. I am glad that I did. There are lots of days left in January to get Medieval Town Mandala Part 4 finished anyhow :-) My rotation is all messed up right now, and I will rethink it a little... but will keep my Tuesday and Wednesday SAL nights just as they are!
Here is something a little bit hopeful! Although, I have to admit that I am also quite skeptical. Instead of receiving the March issue of Stitcher's World today, I received Cross-Stitch & Needlework, which claims to be the return of the old beloved Cross Stitch & Country Crafts. This was very exciting to me.... except when I looked inside the magazine, it still looks like Stitcher's World on the inside... nothing too spectacular at all. Maybe it will get better, but I am not so sure that it will. Just taking the old name does not mean it will be the old magazine. At least, they are not off to a great start with it. Better Homes & Gardens used to run the old CS&CC, which later became CSN, but now they do not appear to be involved any longer. Hmmmm.... skepticism....
Some great news today! I noticed that Jeannette Douglas is going to be teaching at Celebrations this year! Yaaaaaaay!! I am definitely going to have to budget the money to take one of her classes, for sure!
Well, the Patriots did not win tonight. I am actually feeling a bit relieved. I was disappointed that they lost to the Denver Broncos due to so many turnovers that they committed on their own.... But the relief is that it is soooo hard to continually be champs and to have to withhold that status is tough. Next year will go well for them - it is someone else's turn this year :-)
Stitched on today: Mermaids of the Deep Blue
***Anyone else sick of the Brad/Angelina (or Brangelina) news??? I am a Jennifer Aniston fan. This whole to-do is annoying to me! Can't stand either of these two.
